Alex just got returned from Somerset PA, where he confronted the annual meeting
of the Flight 93 Memorial Project. Alex continues to expose the many Islamic and
terrorist memorializing features in the chosen memorial design. This is an ongoing fight. Those brave Americans who died fighting the Islamic terrorists on flight 93 did not die in vain. They did not die so that a dhimmi memorial venerating the death cult that sent them to an early grave would be erected. I originally posted on this abomination:
Atlas Shrugs: Flight 93 Memorial - A Giant Red Islamic Crescent
Several important developments.
One of the local newspapers, the Johnstown Tribune Democrat, finally fact checked my claim that a person facing directly into the the giant central crescent of the Crescent of Embrace design will be facing almost exactly at Mecca. (This central crescent remains completely intact in the Bowl of Embrace redesign, which only added a few trees to the rear left of a person facing into the giant crescent.)
This fact checking is trivially easy to do. I gave reporter Kirk Swauger the address of a Muslim websit, Islam.com, that has a Mecca direction calculator. While I was on the phone with him, Kirk set the calculator to Somerset PA and clicked on "view qibla direction." He placed the resulting Mecca direction graphic over the Crescent of Embrace site-plan PDF (recreated below) and said: "Yup. It points to Mecca":
The green circle, marked with the qibla for Somerset, is from Islam.com. A person standing at the midpoint between the most obtruding tips of the crescent structure and facing into the center of the crescent (red arrow), will be facing almost exactly at Mecca.
I have documented the Tribune Democrat's long resistance to fact checking my cliams, followed by its refusal publish its own fact checking of my claim that the Crescent/Bowl design has 44 inscribed memorial glass blocks emplaced along the flight path (matching the number of passengers, crew, and terrorists). But in the end the Trib-Dem finally came through. Many thanks to Kirk Swauger for checking the orientation of the crescent, and to editor Chip Minemyer for publishing it:
His claims seem to be backed up by coordinates for the direction of qibla from Somerset that can be found on Islam.com. When superimposed over the crescent in the memorial design, the midpoint points over the Arctic Circle, through Europe toward Mecca.
Kirk also quoted me on the meaning of this Mecca oriented crescent:
“A crescent that Muslims face into is called a mihrab. It’s the central feature on which every mosque is built,” said Rawls, who says his book is scheduled to be released next month by World Ahead Publishing.
Next month is too late. The public needs to know NOW what is in the crescent design, so World Ahead is graciously allowing me to make my final draft of Crescent of Betrayal temporarily available for free download online.
